Kennel Club Breeder Assessors

The Kennel Club has a number of Breeder Assessors who play a central role in maintaining the high standards of the Kennel Club Assured Breeder Scheme as it continues to grow in size and stature.

Each Breeder Assessor is chosen following a rigorous selection process that takes account of their breeding experience, knowledge of the scheme and general commitment to the dog world.

Between them the Assessors have amassed years of breeding experience and include Show Champion breeders, Crufts judges, a former veterinary nurse and behaviourist, people who have served in the Police service and Armed Forces and a Breed Council Secretary.

The Assessors are responsible for inspecting the premises of the Scheme's members and ensuring that its principles and standards are upheld.
